Yorktown Theatre’s Dramatic Play Reading: Marvellous, An Illuminated Tale
Dec 16th at Gunston Arts Center, 2700 S. Lang St, at 2:00pm
WSC Avant Bard’s Scripts in Play festival includes Yorktown High School! Come to a dramatic play reading performed by Yorktown Theatre in collaboration with WSC Avant Bard, complete with sound and light effects. The story of Marvellous features Verbatim, an orphan boy left on the steps of an Abbey. One day, he climbs an anchor that falls from the sky and not only finds himself in a dream he’s been waiting for all his life, he also meets the girl who’s been popping up in the dream. Verbatim finds himself on a magical adventure which teaches him about the fine art of growing up, imagination, and telling his own story.

WSC Avant Bard has been working with the Theatre III students for several weeks to prepare for this performance. We are excited to have Mr. Minnicino and WSC Avant Bard partner in this Marvellous project! To find out more, see wscavantbard.org. Performance is free!
